NEW ORLEANS (Louisiana Record) — A New Orleans attorney and an Alexandria attorney both received deferred suspensions following separate Louisiana Supreme Court rulings after both had alcohol-related brushes with the law.

New Orleans attorney Timothy John Henry Jr. and Alexandria attorney Robert O’Neal Chadwick Jr. both received the suspensions following June 15 Louisiana Supreme Court attorney disciplinary proceedings. Neither attorney had prior discipline listed on their separate profiles at the Louisiana State Bar Association's website.

Both attorneys were ordered to pay all costs and expenses in their matters. "Any failure of respondent [Henry/Chadwick] to comply with the conditions of probation, or any misconduct during the probationary period, may be grounds for making the deferred portion of the suspension executory, or imposing additional discipline, as appropriate," the court said in both attorney disciplinary proceedings.

Henry, managing director and general counsel at Perkin Industries of Greater New Orleans, according to his LinkedIn page, was suspended for one year following his guilty plea to first offense DWI, according to the state high court's single-page attorney disciplinary proceeding in his case. Henry's suspension was fully deferred and was followed by a year of unsupervised probation, which will begin after he and the office of disciplinary counsel execute a formal probation plan.

Henry was admitted to the bar in Louisiana on May 8, 2014, according to his profile at the state bar's website.

In a separate attorney disciplinary proceeding, Chadwick, an attorney with Chadwick & Odom in Alexandria, was suspended for a year and one day with all but six months deferred, followed by two years' unsupervised probation. The court's ruling follows an office of disciplinary counsel investigation into allegations that Chadwick had been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Prior to the office of disciplinary counsel filing formal charges, Chadwick and the office filed with the court a joint petition for consent discipline, in which Chadwick admitted to violating professional conduct rules.
